How ironic that Emily Thorne goes under water in the Season 2 premiere of Revenge to dig up forgotten memories of her mother. We recently learned that Kara Wallace Clarke attempted to drown her baby girl when she was a mere tot!
Who gave us this dish? None other than the illustrious Madeleine Stowe who plays Emily’s no. 1 enemy, Victoria Grayson.
The 54-year-old actress was recently interviewed for the YouTube page of The Golden Globe Awards, and seemed all too eager to fish up some dirt on this spoiler-packed season.
“Emily’s mother tried drowning her when she was a little girl, but she doesn’t remember it,” Madeleine reveals. “So it’s all about that recovered memory. Jennifer [Jason Leigh] and I get to play a lot. So it’s really two converging stories.”
Whoa! We knew Kara was coo-coo, but we definitely didn’t see that one coming!
Did you think Emily’s mother was capable of such an act? Weigh in below!
